Looking for body parts to repair my rear back bumper assembly

I just had the unthinkable ... a rear ender on my '88 345 MH... my aluminum rear bumper is pushed in enough to break the plastic lower wrap that reaches all the way to the hatch for the water and electrical hose compartment. Luckily there was no damage to the aluminum but the plastic has broken into multiple pieces. I think the aluminum bumper can be straighten but this plastic wrap is no longer being made ... does anyone have an idea for repairing these plastic wraps? I have left messages at various parts places around the country but I think it may be difficult to find a replacement.. Airstream no longer stocks these parts... looking for ideas ... Mr. D.

We have in stock, the front end and rear end lower parts on your 345 made with fiberglass.

If the basic shape of the part is still there you can repair it with fiberglass sheet material and body puddy. Any boat supply or auto body supply will have the material. Fiberglass is easy to do as long as you have temperatures about 75 degrees, or take the piece inside to work.

If you do repair it yourself make sure you glass both sides, make a sandwitch of the job, or it will crack in time.

I am most certainly interested in the rear wrap you have for the '88 345 Airsteam. Please send information on how I might view your parts. Thanks, Mr. D.
